Jump! for Red Cross

The Team from Red Cross - Tauranga Service Centre - Greerton

New Zealand Red Cross has partnered with Skydive Tauranga to host an exhilarating event. You will start your adventure with a 20/25 minute scenic flight of Tauranga and surrounding areas, taking in a mix of golden sand beaches, waterways, cities and mountains and when you reach 12,000ft you will take the plunge free falling back towards Tauranga at 200km/h on a tandem skydive.

You will need to raise $500 minimum to do the jump, raise $800 to do the jump and receive the photo package for free or raise $1000 to do the jump, and we will throw in the photo and video package! Jump day is Sunday 26 July.

*If the jump cannot go ahead on the day (e.g. poor weather conditions), a voucher will be provided by the operator to reclaim at a time convenient for you.

So, what are you waiting for… cross skydiving off your bucket list or help throw a boss, friend or whanau out of a plane and support New Zealand Red Cross all at the same time!

Change your bins

Barry from Papamoa Beach

If you find that the kerbside collection bins provided by the council are too large or too small for your household use you can switch to smaller bins and receive a $30 discount in your annual rates or get larger bins and pay an extra $100 a year. Google "Change your bin size Tauranga" to find the form on the council website. Your order has to be in before the 31st of May and your new bins should arrive before the 1st of July.

Also, on the website you can make a complaint about damaged bins or missed collections. In my book, missed collections includes bins not emptied properly. If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the collection service I suggest that you use the "Additional comments" section of the website to make your feelings known.
